We are just underway the aesthetic planning stages of whats going to be a staggered stage theater that is going to wind up as a front projection room a few years down the road. The problem now is it is in a house that's 1200 miles away....so there's a lot of imagination in play with the space, scale and colors & textures.
We want something thats going to be very cave like and dark but with personality and without feeling cold and minimal which I feel the black leather furniture we have chosen tends to be.
So far we are working off an idea pulled from these playing cards:
So basically black, white, gray. Underlying themes of mystery, magic, smoke and mirrors and a touch of occult and imagination. The main thing we want to achieve is an edgy fashionable look but not so much that it gets tacky or campy.
Fabric for the acoustic panels and antique Louis side chairs.
We just got the bolts of fabric in for the acoustic panels and in a large setting at a distance it looks more like a traditional toile until you get up close to it and see the details, which is very cool.
All the trim work is going to be a satin black with gray antiquing.
In summing it up like this it seems a bit too goth and on the nose but I think with high quality furniture and smart, clean installation it will pull together and be edgy but smart.
